SpyBot S&D has in my mind been one of the more reliable FREE anti spy-ware utilities. It has over the years that I have used it, come a long way to finding and successfully removing most internet born threats. However I have also tested many other scanner/removers and found that SpyBot S&D has not always found or removed some infections. But hey we cannot expect just one scanner to remove all threats. I haven't found one yet! SPYBOT S&D does however rate highly in my recommendations, as long as one knows what combination of scanners are best suited together. One downfall I have noticed is that in attempting to recognise and remove the virtumonde threat, the SpyBot signature database has dramatically increased, making the overall scanning time quite a bit longer. Please don't get me wrong, this is not a bad thing, you don't want the virtumonde threat on your system, the average scan can take hours to complete (depending on your system speed) In conclusion: BRILLIANT FREE DEFENCE AGAINST NET NASTIES!
